ABSTRACT
L’articolo descrive il progetto di mobilità sostenibile che integra la riqualificazione ambientale di un tratto del fiume Solofrana nella Provincia di Salerno, la riqualificazione di sette stazioni locali della linea ferroviaria Mercato San Severino – Nocera Inferiore con la realizzazione di un percorso ciclabile per la fruizione del territorio naturale. L’approccio di fondo della proposta progettuale è quella di integrare i temi della mobilità. sostenibile con quelli del recupero ambientale, andando ad intervenire in un territorio ad elevata criticità: i comuni di Nocera Inferiore, Nocera Superiore, Roccapiemonte, Castel San Giorgio e Mercato San Severino (Provincia di Salerno) con una popolazione complessiva di circa 114.000 abitanti (fonte demo ISTAT 2010). La strategia consiste nella definizione di due tipologie di azione: interventi interni ed esterni alle stazioni ferroviarie. Gli interventi esterni alle stazioni prevedono la realizzazione di percorsi ciclo pedonali che andranno ad incrementare la presenza di spazi dedicati ai ciclisti e ai pedoni lungo le sponde del torrente Solofrana e all’interno degli insediamenti urbani, attuando così sia una riqualificazione delle sponde del torrente Solofrana, sia un miglioramento urbanistico delle aree interessate. Gli interventi interni alle stazioni, consistono, coerentemente ai principi del Transit Oriented Development, nella riqualificazione degli spazi comuni con inserimento di nuove funzioni e nella realizzazione di posteggi per biciclette ad elevazione automatica, con copertura in pannelli fotovoltaici.The article presents the “LungoSolofrana” project, has been carried out during the course “Urban and Mobility” in the academic year 2009/2010, held during the bachelor in Environmental Engineering at the University of Naples “Federico II”. The work has also been chosen as a finalist to participate at the “UrbanPromo 2010” contest, the urban and territorial marketing event sponsored by the National Institute of Urban Planning and Urbit which was held in Venice 27 to 30 October 2010.The project consists in a green mobility proposal, developed with an approach based on the integration of the environmental redevelopment of a portion of river Solofrana, situated in Salerno province, and of the renewal of seven local stations of the railway line Mercato San Severino – Nocera Inferiore, including the realization of a cycle-path network for the natural environment fruition.Furthermore the work drew attention and regards of the local and regional administration. The main intent of the project is to integrate sustainable mobility themes with the environment recovery in a territory affected by high environmental troubles.The area includes the municipalities of Nocera Inferiore, Nocera Superiore, Mercato San Severino, Castel San Giorgio and Roccapiemonte, situated in Salerno’s province, with a total population about 114.000 (font Demo ISTAT 2010).The area extension is about 84,30 sqkm and it is crossed by river Solofrana that is the central point of the project idea. The intervention strategy is defined in two kinds of actions: internal and external rail station interventions. The external rail station interventions regard the construction of pedestrian-cycle paths with the scope of increasing the spaces dedicated to cyclists and to pedestrians along the river Solofrana sides and to connect the urban areas with the railway station. In this way, it’s also possible to achieve an urban requalification of the interested area. On the other side, the interventions inside the station , according to Transit Oriented Development principles, aim at redeveloping common spaces with the insertion of new activities and at realizing new automatic cycle parks covered by photovoltaic panels.The project proposal consists of the urban regeneration of small railway stations along the route-Nocera-Codola Mercato San Severino in the province of Salerno, through interventions aimed at improving pedestrian accessibility. The project involves in particular the construction of pedestrian paths protected access to the station and connecting with neighboring towns and installation of innovative bike parking stations in elevation, covering surfaces coated with solar panels and spaces information.The project is aimed to propose a new model of sustainable transport for small and medium shifts as an alternative to private transportation.
